How do you write something appealing to female readers without devolving into faggotry?

Do you think Berserk was written for the female gaze? Guts is pretty hot right? And there's emotions and beauty in the story. Girls are all about emotions and shit. But guys like Berserk too.

But you haven't read them, clearly, so you're fucking retarded to have an opinion on them
Just so you know, the more you guys go into hypermasculinity the gayer you become. It doesn't hurt to tap into your feminine side once in a while. We're sociable animals anon. If all men were lone wolves we wouldn't have reached this point in history. The healthiest and richest societies are those who value the opposite sex' and their input. The nordic model is a model for a reason.
I like berserk because of the gorgeous art. I was quite sad when Miura died. I chatted with friends about his passing so I recommended it to her. A few weeks later she called me saying she was disgusted and asked WHY was I alright reading it. I guess I'm numbed to the content but I can see why normal women would refuse to read it. Most women are just tired of seeing a female character get raped. It's not something against Berserk esp since two male characters (main even) who got raped by men. But I can see why women don't like it. If most media have men getting raped by men wouldn't be comfortable with it either.

Hi guys, I'm learning Japanese and planning to move to Japan sometime in the near future.

Do you think work as a Japanese animator is easier to land, as a foreigner, or is publishing manga easier? (even self publishing and selling at Comiket counts) Which work is more fulfilling? Which would YOU personally enjoy doing more?

If you don't even know what you want to do there's no way you'll be able to keep up with the skill and work ethic of Japanese animators or mangaka.
You’re right. I need to be more strong minded. Thanks for the advice
> you gonna eat that?

>Comics is a hopeless industry.
It's a free market bro. If nobody wants it, it ain't gonna sell well, and creators won't live from it. It's a very good thing. In some countries, modern crappy senseless art is state-sponsored (more or less, but the idea is that "artists" get free money regardless of market's will). The result is that you get lots of shitty stuff all around that nobody wants, and it keeps being produced. In a working free-market, they would naturally die (metaphorically) or be forced to actually deliver something people want.

> I 4m Expr3SsinG MyS3lF G1RLfri3nd

Capitalism is great [as long as it doesn't get (naturally) too corrupted].
Which is tragic considering there are people making living with comics in Czech Republic (or so they claim) a market of 11 million where comics notoriously don’t sell well.
Anime studios are constantly understaffed so it's not hard to land an animation job, problem is it pays shit if you're an entry level animator who's slow at drawing

Mangaka is harder to get but has better income and you can work as an assistant to round up

Ok rajesh
I do enjoy pretty, clean feet, none of those ugly, dirty feet.
Brad Pitt's feet look weird, sort of gangly and feminine. and how the eff is he driving the car with both feet on the dash?
Find references and copy thousands of feet.
Also, lear natomy of feet and perspective. Learn how the feet work (bones, muscles, tendons) and how to construct them.
While you copy references, alsto try to redraw stuff from imagination.

Be prepared to spend thousands of hours on this.

That's all you need to do.

Is there a "recommended practice list" to go along with each chapter of the vilppu book? Something like
>Read and copy chapter 1 X amount of times over an X day/week period
>Watch the video for chapter 1 X amount of times
>Do X gesture drawings (or chapter specific practice) per day for X days
>Do X finished pieces focusing on the gesture of the figure (or whatever the chapter is focusing on)

just draw
But draw what? Just basic forms?
Anything and everything. Do you know how to draw bottles? Lamps? What kind of lamps can you draw from memory? Imagination? Chairs? What kind of chairs? Mugs? Grass?

Until you can literally draw anything
what do you love?
draw that, and make it beautiful.
what do you hate?
draw that too, and destroy it.

“Just draw” is a garbage meme that only gives you practice consistency at best. Except your practice is worthless. What are the absolute dulled, down basic first steps laid out in plain English so even a retard can understand how to draw? Thank you.

Break down your goals into small bits of progress you can easily achieve.
Something can seem insurmountable and unachievable if you're always focusing on the destination; but sometimes you just have to walk forward bit by bit in order to get things done.

They were all jelly crabs who want you to fail. Your special and everyone is afraid of your talent.
Life is all about making people jealous of your social status and material possessions. Don't bat an eye about throwing anyone under the bus when it can benefit you or networking with others for your own benefit. Don't put effort into anything and always blame others because they all want you to fail or for not telling you the secret tricks, don't let others tell you otherwise.

When you're finally famous & rich, everyone will regret not worshipping you, king.

It teaches you how to love the act of drawing, ensuring that you'll want to keep doing it and not remain stuck as a beginner forever.
Draw the things that you like, use references and don't be afraid to try new tools. More advanced knowledge should only come later, and for now what should be focused on is making sure that the subject of your art is identifiable.
You'll learn way more if you just draw and then later compare it with the work of others and also photos to see where you got things wrong and how to make it better. Once you identify the problem then you can focus on it and study further.

What do you like drawing? Humans? Animals? Architecture? Pick something, draw a lot, observe and compare. However, don't get too comfy and challenge yourself to draw new things or difficult things within a field of interest.
The hardest part is to keep going. That is why you have to love it and understand that improvement comes with time. Just draw. Copy photos, copy other drawings you found interesting, trace, do whatever you feel like doing as long as you enjoy it. Persevere and don't let the first results that are going to be shit bring you down.
If you feel like you are lacking ideas, look at more art, watch movies, play games, read books, anything that will help you grow your visual library and feed your creativity.

went out of my comfort zone with this one
im mainly concerned about the arms and the hair as i usually do not draw long hair
i think the body might be a bit disproportionate too but not sure how
any other improvements are appreciatd
your picture makes me think it's raining!

That's a good question. Personally I say over stylized cartoon/caricature shouldn't need red lines. But, some anons want a different take on their designs, with a different style.
This is a place for art exchange and dialogue. Anyways.
ah thank you
i love your pond girl drawing, i hope to be able to draw anatomy and put it in such perspectives one day

How do I get good at drawing? I'm left handed, have perpetually shaky hands, ADHD, autism and a learning disability. Almost 24.

I've wanted to get good at art since I was a teen but I've lacked the motivations, resources and teachings to get started.

I don't know
>which brush size to use
>optimal size to draw digitally
>good pressure curve to start out with
>how to find a comfortable pressure curve
>how to undo bad habits like drawing stiff figures
>how to fix shitty lines you're too used to drawing

>just draw what you're obsessed with
nta, but that sounds like a good advice. My problem? Not wanting to draw that thing until I get good because I also I'm kind of attention whore, so I want to post what I draw, so I don't want to ruin the image of my OC by being beg.
Only way for me to draw a finished piece is to get a temporary hype about meme, joke, fad or request in drawthreads, sometimes sheer desire of wanting to meme on someone.

I tried drawing bigger today, copying something from Loomis' book again.
Read your loomis, Hard round brush, study profesional artists you like and most importantly stop being a faggot
>don't want to ruin the image of my OC by being beg.

Yeah I'm the same almost exactly. I've got a ton of OCs and have a story planned out but am eternally putting it off because "oh no what if it's not good enough" "oh no i can't draw backgrounds that well yet". I get commissions regularly but I feel like I need more experience on comics/narrative illustrations before I'm good enough to really start a project of my own.

At the moment I'm in a really weird spot where my autism has latched onto my girlfriends OC who was the final boss of a homebrew D&D campaign she ran, so I'm drawing her character a lot (she has no complaints because hey, free art even if I am in turboautism mode) and using it as an opportunity to practice more complex backgrounds/scenes. But I can't post the art anywhere because she's running the homebrew campaign for like four different groups and not all of them have hit the final boss yet, so can't get feedback on if the backgrounds actually look decent

Just kinda hoping my brain latches onto something else that I can share more easily and get feedback on soon
